CROSBY ECLIPSES 400-GOAL MILESTONE IN PENGUINS WIN
Sidney Crosby scored twice to eclipse the 400-goal milestone (401-688—1,089 in 839 GP) and help the Penguins improve to 6-1-1 in their last eight games.
Crosby snapped a 10-game goal drought but has collected 5-22—27 in 17 games since Jan. 1, tied with teammate Evgeni Malkin (16-11—27 in 17 GP) for the most points in the NHL in 2018. The Penguins (31-22-4, 66 points) have moved from seventh to second in the Metropolitan Division standings during that span, posting a 12-4-1 (25 points) record in 2018.
Crosby reached the milestone with his father Troy in attendance at Scottrade Center, who took part in the Penguins’ annual Fathers’ Trip this weekend.
“It was really nice. To have my dad here who was around for so many early mornings and sacrificed a lot so I could play hockey, it’s special . . . It’s been a fun weekend, especially getting three of four points.” – Sidney Crosby on his father being in attendance for career goal No. 400
CANUCKS SCORE SIX TIMES TO BLANK STARS
Vancouver matched a season high for goals and Jacob Markstrom turned aside all 30 shots he faced as the Canucks earned a 6-0 win over the Stars, their largest margin of victory in a shutout since Dec. 6, 2011 vs. COL (6-0 W). Vancouver earned its first regulation win against Dallas since Feb. 21, 2013 (4-3 W), snapping the Stars’ 14-game point streak against them (13-0-1).
